Abstract

With the rapid increase in individuals participating in resistance training activities, the number of injuries pertaining to these activities has also grown just as aggressively. Diagnosing the causes of injuries and discomfort requires a large amount of resources from highly experienced physiotherapists. In this paper, we propose a new framework to analyse and visualize movement patterns during performance of four major compound lifts. The analysis generated will be used to efficiently determine whether the exercises are being performed correctly, ensuring anatomy remains within its functional range of motion, in order to prevent strain or discomfort that may lead to injury.
